Dual-Purpose Chicken-Research to Improve Animal Welfare

TiHo investigates new poultry husbandry concept - Studentenwerk tests acceptance in refectories

Researchers of the University of Veterinary Medicine Hannover, Foundation, (TiHo) are currently investigating the husbandry of dual-purpose chicken in cooperation with scientists from other research institutions. These chickens can be used for producing both eggs and meat. A market test in the Hanover cafeterias of the Studentenwerk is also part of this project. The male birds of the dual-purpose chicken are sold as half a roast chicken, and guests asked for their opinion.
